Wow! Another big day for Ron Paul. His grassroots campaign raised an astonishing $6 million yesterday on the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. This total surpassed the $4.2 million he raised last month and was the most ever raised on the internet in one day.
Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul’s supporters raised over $6 million Sunday to boost the 10-term Texas congressman’s campaign for the White House.
Called a “Money Bomb,” the goal was to raise as much money as possible on the Internet in one day. The campaign’s previous fundraiser brought in $4.2 million.
At midnight EST, donations were over $6 million, according to the campaign Web site. Those donations are processed credit card receipts, said Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton. Benton said the median donation is about $50 in the fundraiser, which was the idea of Paul supporters who are not officially connected to the campaign.
What does this mean for the GOP nomination? Not sure yet. But, with every “money bomb” that Ron Paul does, he get’s noticed a little more. However, he’s still running behind the other mainstream republican candidates.
